Hi Shane,

We've not touched anything on the BLAST+ wrapper here for
a while - the command line is always built using:

-num_threads "\${GALAXY_SLOTS:-8}"

That means use the environment variable $GALAXY_SLOTS
if set, defaulting to 8 threads if not. See:

https://github.com/peterjc/galaxy_blast/blob/master/tools/ncbi_blast_plus/ncbi_macros.xml#L352

Galaxy itself should be setting $GALAXY_SLOTS via your
cluster configuration - and from your description this seems
to be set to 1 thread/slot only.

Can you tell us more about how your Galaxy LSF is setup?
Have you got BLAST specific cluster job settings?

(I don't use LSF so don't have the details to hand)

Peter
